The Quality of Life Survey is a biennial survey of resident perceptions of well being in New Zealand's larger urban areas. The random survey of 5,000 respondents includes a sample of 500 Christchurch residents.
The Quality of Life Survey is part of the wider Quality of Life Project, which covers Auckland, Wellington, Hutt, Porirua, Christchurch and Dunedin. Below are the Christchurch results for the 2012 and 2008 surveys. The 2010 results can be found at the Quality of Life Project website.
The Community Outcomes monitoring programme reports on key indicators identified for each of Christchurch's 18 Community Outcomes. This is a useful source of summary information across a broad range of aspects of community wellbeing.
